April 23-May 13, 2018 Executive Board Officers Election

The 2018 Executive Board Officers Election is underway (as of 7:00 a.m. this morning), and you should be receiving an email to your Wayne e-mail address, which includes your unique link to your ballot for voting.

If you do not receive a ballot in your inbox today, first, please check your spam folder to make sure it is not there. If you cannot locate the e-mail in either location, please notify the Union Office at 313-577-1750. There is a process for issuing duplicate unique voting links with the Election Company we are using, which must be strictly adhered to, since this is a secret ballot election.

Please take the time out of your busy schedules to cast your vote in this important election of the Local Union.

Good Luck to all of the candidates running for Union Office!

Follow Up: Economic Justice Town Hall


Colleagues,

The organizers of the Economic Justice Town Hall, a subgroup of the Social Justice Committee of the AAUP-AFT Local 6075 would appreciate your help in providing information for the attached survey.

The need for budget transparency was a common theme that arose from conversations throughout the Town Hall, especially in regard to budget and salary data, which play a critical role in the shared governance of our university. Other general concerns included, but were not limited to:

·       Workload/salary disparities
·       Positions remaining unfilled
·       Lack of travel funds
·       Unhealthy work and building conditions
·       Outdated computers
·       New budget model (RCM)
·       Lack of accountability for administrators
·       Student scholarship access

There was also strong support for taking this information to the Board of Governors. We plan to do just that at the next WSU Board of Governors (BOG) Meeting on Friday, March 23, 2018.
In preparation for this meeting, below is a link to an informal resource survey.

            Survey Link Here

Feedback from the Informal Resource Survey will be used to gather quantitative information to support our current and future efforts in seeking economic justice at our university.

If you are interested in attending the BOG meeting and/or have questions about the Social Justice Committee, please contact Mark Dilley, Director of Organizing, at mdilley@aaupaft.org or 313-942-9454

In Solidarity,

AAUP-AFT

equity, justice, and shared governance in support of the University and the students we serve.
